From the recording Dark Matter

Lyrics

You struggle every day
Trying to make ends meet
Trying to find your way
Trying to find your feet
You want to build a wall
That’s a hundred foot tall
Lay your burden down

Lay it down
Lay it all down
Lay your burden down

You tried to live the dream
It was not what it seemed
Till you’re so full of lies
You’ve become what you despised
They cut you with a blade
They took everything you made¬
Lay your burden down

Lay it down
Lay it all down
Lay your burden down

You smiled for the camera
They hit you with a hammer
They took everything they wanted
Till you felt like you were haunted
Your dream home was a show dome
As solid as a snow cone
Lay your burden down

Lay it down
Lay it all down
Lay your burden down

In the middle of your ages
You grew tired of the pages
You grew tired of the book
And the way that you look
So you took to the drink
‘Cause it helps not to think
Lay your burden down

Lay it down
Lay it all down
Lay your burden down

You might be working nine to five
Just trying to survive
You might be stuck in a book
You might be Captain Cook
On board the Titanic
You’re starting to panic
Lay your burden down.

Lay it down
Lay it all down
Lay your burden down
